This summer we won't be sending the kids to camp and hitting the beach. Instead, on June 26th, Scott, Melanie, Lucas and Sydney depart for a 2 month adventure in Peru where we'll immerse ourselves in peruvian culture, volunteer to help those less privileged, hike the Inca Trail and live in the jungle. Follow our blog for regular updates, pictures and videos from all 4 of us.

Past Weekend & New Pics

This past weekend we took advantage of being fully acclimated to explore Cusco and beyond.  On Saturday, we started with a big american style breakfast at The Meeting Place, and afterward we took advantage of the Free Walking Tour to learn all about Cusco.  We ate alpaca, learned the difference between alpaca wool and baby alpaca wool (baby alpaca is not from a baby, but is just the first time an animal is shaved for it's wool), hiked to the San Cristobal church and drank Pisco (a local liquor).

On Sunday we took a tour of the Sacred Valley of the Incas, visiting Pisac, Ollantaytambo, Urubamba and Chinchero.

If you're interested, we posted a ton of new pictures to Flickr.
